Winning Pwn2Own Hacker: Macs Are Safer Than PCs Answered
Well, its nice to see the that the winner has common sense on his side.
I've grabbed various bits of this from Gizmodo, whom got it from Tom's Hardware.
"I'd say that Macs are less secure for the reasons we've discussed here (lack of anti-exploitation technologies) but are more safe because there simply isn't much malware out there. For now, I'd still recommend Macs for typical users as the odds of something targeting them are so low that they might go years without seeing any malware, even though if an attacker cared to target them it would be easier for them."
Be sure to read the Article before you start flaming.
It mirrors what me and goodhart were saying before,
A computers security is based entirely on the user.
I used windows for over 2 years, with no anti-virus, no anti-spyware. Just a good firewall, and my common sense.
My first rule of computing common sense is, only download pictures, music, and movies.
If your going to get some
illegal software get it from someone else whom has used the install files, and knows they work!
Also, do not trust ll.13 when he links to your a serial website without informing you that most of them are Trojans.
